Contra Costa County's 10-Day DUI Rule

How Many Days After a DUI Do I have to request a DMV Hearing?

Upon arrest for DUI, the arresting officer will confiscate your license. Exceptions to this rule include out-of-state licenses, blowing a low BAC, and drug-related arrests. Once your license is confiscated, you only have ten days to request a hearing from the DMV. Our Walnut Creek DUI lawyer, Anthony Blalock, provides you with the information you need to navigate this process effectively.

Contact the Blalock Law Firm, PC today and ask for a free consultation. We also can fax the DMV form over for you, so you can have one less thing to worry about. Our compassionate attorney, Anthony Blalock, can be reached at (925) 259-3270.
